Tecan OEM components chosen for reliability

  Tecan OEM liquid handling components have been chosen by Akubio in Cambridge, UK, a supplier of acoustic biosensors for the real time detection of molecular interactions, for its new RAP♦id4 acoustic biosensor platform. The Tecan components take samples from tubes or 96-well microplates and inject them directly into the analyser unit of the RAP♦id4 instrument, where the sample passes across oscillating quartz crystals.

Ian Campbell, Business Development Director at Akubio, explained why he has repeatedly chosen Tecan as an OEM supplier: “The liquid handling system in our products is critical - it must handle samples reliably and accurately. Tecan’s components are an industry standard and we use them because they work reliably and we know we will always get good technical support should we need it. Tecan has given us excellent service, excellent delivery, and has also been very helpful in working with us to get the product ready to schedule.”
